Third-party benchmark tool designed to help reduce public health & environmental risks from chemical exposure for health care, retail, investors, and other stakeholders.
The BizNGO Chemicals Work Group focuses on chemicals management and metrics. We work on practical ways to implement the BizNGO Principles for Safer Chemicals.
Responsible companies are advancing an economy where the production and use of chemicals are healthy for humans, as well as for our global environment and its non-human inhabitants, by adopting and implement the following four guiding principles for safer chemicals.
BizNGO defines pathways to safer chemicals. It all begins with the Principles for Safer Chemicals:
- Know chemicals in products and supply chains
- Disclose chemicals in products and supply chains
- Assess and avoid hazards
- Commit to continuous improvement
- Support public policies and voluntary initiatives
Endorsing organizations now total 80 and include HP, Staples, Construction Specialties and Seventh Generation.
